Posted on 08/02/2016 5:01:05 AM PDT by Puppage
Calhoun Colleges name could still be changed, according to a message sent out Monday by Yale University President Peter Salovey.
With the formation of a Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming, the door appears to be open to reconsidering the Yale Corporations decision not to rename the residential college, despite widespread anger among Yale students, alumni and faculty during the last academic year.

PC. horse. sh*t.
Shame on them.
Erasing history is not a real good idea. There’s a reason all of those building at Yale were named for the people chosen for the honor.
Man, the fools and idiots are now in control and are running the Country. obama aside, Hillary Clinton aside, ISIS and other muslim organizations aside[all muslim organizations are merely different branches on the same tree]. We, as a Nation, will not last many with idiots such as this running the Country. I understand that the powers at Yale , etal., are not running the Country. But they replicate, each year they send out thousands of replicas of them throughout the Nation. And most , if not all, of them end up in Government. Thus Nature takes its course.
They just might be opening a REAL can of worms!
Calhoun Da Lawyer. From Amos and Andy.
There’s information everywhere that colleges like Yale and Harvard were built by slave-traders and slave trade money.
The Yale and Harvard names should be stricken from their Ivy walls.
Going after the Calhoun building is ‘low hanging’ calorie-free fruit.
For the Progressives/Liberals to protect the names “Yale” and “Harvard” is disingenuous.
Tear it down or leave it all up.
Theres information everywhere that colleges like Yale and Harvard were built by slave-traders and slave trade money.
and there are many idiots who are offended upon hearing that these slaves were well fed...
so wrote one numbskull to Bill O’Reilly, following his assertion that slaves building the White House didn’t miss too many dinners....
Yale = no common sense
Yale = no guts
John C. Calhoun is a distant relative of mine. I am from the Calhoun Clan of Scotland through my mothers side of the family.
Oh terrific,they are considering naming it after a football player.
PC madness must NOT stop there.
A commission must be named to see to the re-naming of WASHINGTON, D.C. as well as WASHINGTON state. The WASHINGTON MEMORIAL must be torn down. The name Robert E. Lee must be expunged from the history books. The song DIXIE must be censored, and illegal to play, either live or recorded.
The name of ANY individual connected in ANY way with slavery must be stricken from the land. (Massive sarc)
It starts with an ultra PC college and ends ????????
It will never stop unless whites stand up for themselves. This is just the tip of the iceberg too. All of our founders and history is at risk up to at least until 1965 and some could argue even up until today. BLM etc and Obamanation says there is still work to do...
The Western World has seriously lost it's way. We were strong because of who we were/are. You'd never know it today.
A few months ago students at some college/university wanted the name changed on a building there named LYNCH.... Wondered if they would demand the AG change her name as it could imply SHE really wouldn’t be AGAINST the lynching of her own race. It no doubt was given to her family of SLAVES by a slave master by that name. Oh! Dear - what are we to do?
Yale President Peter Salovey: “My dear friend, I understand that you wish to make a donation to Yale?
Potential Donor: “Yes Pete, I’ve done well and I want to share my good fortune with my Alma Mater.”
Salovey: “As you would expect, I am most pleased to hear this. Do I understand that you wish to make a ‘building’ gift? That is quite expensive, you know!
Donor: “Well, I have set aside about 45 million, so I think ...”
Salovey: “Oh, yes, my VERY DEAR friend, I can see that working very well indeed! Just one or two questions I need to ask.”
Donor: “Shoot Luke!”
Salovey: “And that is exactly what I am talking about. Didn’t you make some of your money in gun manufacturing?”
Donor: “Did I ever, especially after Obama came into office! My investments in S&W and Ruger have soared 1,000%! Of course, that was after I took all my profits from the Defense Industries.”
Salovey: “And aren’t you known for eating at Chik-fil-A? And supporting Mitt Romney in 2012?”
Donor: “I don’t think I like where this is going!”
Salovey: “I truly am sorry but here at Yale, given the problems we have with the Calhoun Building and the fact that ol’ Elihu was a slave trader, naming a building brings a lot of scrutiny!”
Donor: “So, you are saying that normal activities and investments, all perfectly legal, keeps me from giving a whopping hunk on money???”
Salovey: “It is just that it is so expensive to keep cleaning up a building when our more expressive students ... uh ... go on a rant! They are quite demonstrative!”
Donor: “I see, well I am sorry to take up your time!”
Salovey: “It is a sad thing to have such worries in today’s world. Can I interest you in funding a scholarship, or perhaps a donation for Hillary 2016?”
Well the administration shouldn’t complain when the Muslims complain and insist Yale be renamed Al-Sharia.
Lots of people back then were slave traders or owners.
Thomas Jefferson owned slaves.
Big effing deal.
